sebelius says these are the essential benefits for the entire united states of america and you have to follow them is not choice, and that's what they said would happen so this administration knew exactly what it was doing, and it's not insurance company's fault that employers that have over 50 employees are saying forget this. it's too costly. go into the exchanges. that was an easy lie that he didn't have to make. >> they made their own bed. >> coming, we're going to take a look at some of the most something something provocative media reaction to the late -- they were so interested in what we were talking about they forgot that they had to roll the teleprompter. all right. we're going to look at more stuff. before we go check out our facebook page at stay with us. it's a growing trend in business: do more with less with ss energy.hp is help. soon, the world's most intelligent servers, designed by hp, will give ups over twice the performance, using forty percent less energy. multiply that across over a thousand locations, and they'll provide the same benef

. mr. president, the president should ask the secretary of health and human services kathleen sebelius to resign her position because of the disastrous rollout of obamacare. taxpayers have spent $400 million to create exchanges, but after three and one half years still don't work. as a result, the white house had to announce last night that the key enforcement mechanism to their individual mandate, a $95 fine that increases every year, will be waived until the end of march of next year. that's fine for those currently without insurance. but for the millions being forced into the exchanges and losing their current insurance, there's no relief. just higher prices. a likely lapse in insurance coverage. a broken web site. and broken promises. we already know of 1.5 million americans are losing their policies because starting january 1, many insurance policies that they now have will not be legal under obamacare and because the exchange will not be working, they won't be able to choose another policy. this chart gives an example of what's going on. just in three states: california, florida

and human services director kathleen sebelius will be appearing to do the same. cgi, the main contractor developing the website may have warned the obama administration that it wouldn't be ready to go live on october 1st. either way this is what we know as of now. it needs until the end of november to fix the technical glitches on . two months after the launch. all right, so now what we have to figure out is what happens after that. it's not really about the launch that's the most important thing. what the issue is what people are going to end up paying. to compensate for the delay the penalty >> maybe a good thing. i don't. >> what dubonnet? >> well, what i mean is the following. look, let's start with the big picture. the big ping is most americans. vast majority of americans get health insurance from their employer or from the government. for those folks nothing changed on january 1. we're really drilling down to a relatively small slice of americans 6% who buy their insurance on their own. of that population half of which already have insurance that is better than the
for an even higher profile won tomorrow. kathleen sebelius will testify before a house committee tomorrow morning -- tomorrow morning. back to you. >> thank you. >>> and meanwhile, up to 14 million americans who buy their health insurance individually will have their policies canceled within the year. this is according to a report from nbc news. the plans will be canceled because they don't meet the standards laid out by the new law. reportedly, the obama administration has known about this for the past three years. the white house says in most cases those with canceled policies will be automatically shifted to plans with better protections. >>> and here in california, the director of the state health program says he plans to reveal enrollment numbers in mid- november. peter lee says once the figures are posted, they will be very detailed broken down by city, age of enrollees and which kind of plans they have selected. >>> barry bonds is, again, trying to get his obstruction of justice conviction overturned. yesterday, the home run leader's legal team filed a question with the circuit cou

that healthcare wasn't doing well. >> kathleen sebelius said that the president didn't know about the website problems until after the launch. >> when did you know there was a problem? >> it became clear fairly early on. the first couple days that -- >> but not before that though? not before october 1? >> jon: you didn't know there would be problems until the day -- this is your signature program. your name is on it. you look like the charmin bear just found out what people do with his toilet paper. you put this where? i've been rubbing this on my face for years! may be a bit concerning that the president wasn't kept in the loop about the program named after him. but appeared to be very few loops. >> for the first time, the government revealed that it man -- monitored some 35 world leaders, including angela merkel. and the president was kept in the dark about it for five years. >> jon: what? so for five years. i assume the president is being presented with the findings from this world leader monitoring. never occurred to him in five years, how are we getting this? does the preside
sebelius made it public. reporters had access to the information all along. the fact is those with skimpy benefits and high out of pocket costs so taxpayers have to pay -- >> kristen, it was my fault. it was the media's fault and the american people's fault because they should have understood period didn't mean period. >> they are trying to go into another pint .that it never should have been considered insurance in the first place. that exposes what it's about. if you go back the to the supreme court argument over whether it was constitutional the debate centered on whether hips was something everybody would need and it was constitutional to mandate it. the question is was health insurance is same as health care? conservatives say it is not. health insurance is something that should protect you against risk. not be the mechanism of payment for every health care service in your life. >> you were grandfathered unless they changed any part of your policy. then guess what. the department of health and human services wrote regulations that sonar rowed what the insurance companies could do tha
to train their fire on her boss kathleen sebelius. >> i understand you're not publicly releasing those numbers but i'm asking, do you have any idea of on a weekly basis how many people enrolled in how do you not know how many people have enrolled? >> we'll have those numbers available mid november. >> while the sniping over the website persists in committee, republican leadership is out with a new message. we're over the website. >> the problem with obama care isn't just the website, it's the whole law. >> the bottom line is the problems with obama care run deeper than just the website. >> the problems go well beyond a flopped website. >> it is clear obama care and flaws are much more than the website. the website is the tip of the iceberg. >> this week republicans smelled blood in president obama's claim no americans would be kicked off their existing plans. >> let me repeat this. nothing in our plan requires you to change what you have. >> and yet as nbc reports a detailed look at the legislation shows that the administration knew that more than 40 to 67% of those in the individual m
on capitol hill. here is marsha blackburn on the commission that will grill kathleen sebelius tomorrow. welcome back to the program. >> thank you. stuart: you've got a lot of exposure recently on tv, i've been watching you on all kinds of networks and you're highly critical of kathleen sebelius, we know that. i say that the president will never fire her, will never ask her to step aside and she will not volunteer to step aside. am i wrong? >> well, i think that regardless of all of that, whether she stays or whether she goes, what we want to do is find out how much money they've been on this website, who was actually supposed to be coordinating and integrating all of these portals and these stove pipes and we want to know past, present and future, what this is going to end up costing the american people. you know, the incompetence is absolutely staggering, and seeing this kind of incompetence in a website certainly does not lend any confidence whatsoever that they can protect your privacy or they can deliver health care. >> now, ten democrats in the senate want the extension-- want an
theft. what else are we going to learn this week, mr. president, when secretary sebelius testifies in the house tomorrow? will she actually open up? will she tell people the truth? will she give them the real numbers? or will she not admit to what is actually going on and refuse to answer the questions? how much worse does the obama administration's incompetence get? what will it take for the president to admit that his health care law has been a train wreck and that he'll have to delay it for at least a year? we know he's going to have to do it at least eventually. there is no way awful these problems will going to get fixed quickly and he's going to have to delay the individual mandate shall naindz says every american must buy, have, and prove they have health insurance and who's the enforcer? the i.r.s., the internal revenue service. the president should just go ahead and do it now and also delay all the other parts of the law, not just the mandate. it's time for president obama to really come clean with the american people about what his administration knew and then come to the
. just after kathleen sebelius praised the very same component that crashed as a model of efficiency and security. ouch. that malfunction was fixed, but it is the tip of the proverbial iceberg and no one is taking responsibility for all that has gone wrong with the website. the question is -- and there must be an answer to this at some point -- where does the buck stop? tom forman has been trying to figure it all out. it would seem like an easy question to answer. but it isn't. but how did it go so wrong? >> it would seem that way. we know this. the obama care girl who was on the cover here, smiling young woman who embraced the federal website, has disappeared. we don't know why. maybe she's not smiling amid all these problems, but it's just as well. because too many people were involved with this from the start. that's what we're learning. how did this go so wrong? in a perfect world most agree that it should have gone like this. the white house, president obama, would establish and outlined some goals. the department of health and human services would come up with a man to reach th
that is gaining some steam out there, kathleen sebelius, the secretary of health and human services, what should she do? should she resign? we're going to talk about that and much more. two congressmen from opposite sides of the aisle both standing by. there you see them up on capitol hill, marsha blackburn and sheila jackson lee. an important smart debate, that's coming up next. so there i was again, explaining my moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis to another new stylist. it was a total embarrassment. and not the kind of attention i wanted. so i had a serious talk with my dermatologist about my treatment options. this time, she prescribed humira-adalimumab. humira helps to clear the surface of my skin by actually working inside my body. in clinical trials, most adults with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis saw 75% skin clearance. and the majority of people were clear or almost clear in just 4 months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal events, such as infections, lymphoma, or other types of cancer have happened. blood, l
crashed the site yesterday. just after kathleen sebelius praised the very same component that crashed as a model of efficiency and security. ouch. that malfunction was fixed, but it is the tip of the proverbial iceberg and no one is taking responsibility for all that has gone wrong with the website. the question is -- and there must be an answer to this at some point -- where does the buck stop? tom forman has been trying to figure it all out. it would seem like an easy question to answer. but it isn't. but how did it go so wrong? >> it would seem that way. we know this. the obama care girl who was on the cover here, smiling young woman who embraced the federal website, has disappeared. we don't know why. maybe she's not smiling amid all these problems, but it's just as well. because too many people were involved with this from the start. that's what we're learning. how did this go so wrong? in a perfect world most agree that it should have gone like this. the white house, president obama, would establish and outlined some goals. the department of health and human services would come
tavennar testified today. and tomorrow we'll here from kathleen sebelius. are you hearing anything newsbreaking on capitol hill. >> today marilyn t avennar did apologize. she's the highest level so far who has actually apologized. with the secretary's tem i think we would like to know a little bit more about enrollment. we would like to know what are they doing to fix the problems. i don't know if we're going to hear that or not, but what are the specific technical things they're doing. we heard last week that they hope to have the you whole thing running smoothly by the end of november. is that still on track? that kind of thing. we may or may not hear about that tomorrow. >> michael weinberg how close are you watching these hearings. >> i'm focused on reality. people can spin this all day long. democrats, republicans, but at the end of the day either people will be able to get enrolled, will have a healthy risk pool, or rewon't. i'll read the stories about it, but i'm out here trying to make things work in california, where incidentally they are going a lot better. >> tell what's
the decision not to release the numbers until november when kathleen sebelius said she didn't know. so this woman basically admitted they did know, they're just not releasing it. dennis: okay. >> why did sebelius say -- do. dennis: all right, allan? >> look, i wish we had single payer. a lot of people who don't agree with obamacare are some on the left who would like a more progressive program. medicare for all would have been simpler. this has been marketed really badly because people don't understand it. dennis: yeah. marc, do you think at this point we're going to be able to fix this? what's going to happen next? >> well, the problem is what they've done is they intentionally engineered this system where people are going to be, millions of people are going to be involuntarily taken out of their plans, but what they didn't count on, the rub is that the web site isn't working. and so what the problem is now, the people who are getting forced out of their insurance can't get new insurance on the exchanges. we're going to actually have on january 1st millions of people without insurance
